Opulence in Orchid – Our Entry into The Special Event 2014

Greetings ~

Hello and welcome to 2014!!  It sure entered like gangbusters here at the AMA offices!!  Towards the very end of 2013 we were tasked with creating a tabletop design for the 2014 Special Event tradeshow and conference coming to Nashville Jan 7th – 11th.  Now with the holidays being in the mix I’m not gonna lie we were a wee bit worried about creating an amazing design.  But alas when you get a call like that there is nothing else to do but say yes.  So Krisie started right in on the design and brought along some of our favorite vendors to help bring Opulence in Orchid to life!

We were beyond thrilled when we learned on Jan 8th that our table had WON in the category of tabletop design under $1,000 per table.  So now that the dust has settled and everyone has left the tradeshow floor and gone home we wanted to share with you some of the stunning photos courtesy of Scoobie’s Photographic Images and JMF.Photography – we hope you enjoy!!

Greetings from warm sunny West Palm Beach ~

It’s been a hectic 1st day but it is sooooo fabulous to see friends again that I only get to see a few times a year!  It’s even better when I get to meet some of my facebook friends in person and congratulate them on all the great happenings they have had this year!  But now onto business.  Part of this conference allows me to become re-certified as a Sandals rep.  What does this mean?  Well quite simply – are you planning a destination wedding, a honeymoon, an anniversary vacation or maybe a babymoon to Sandals?

Well we here at AMA can get it booked and be your one stop shop!!  Give us a call and allow us to help you plan the vacation in your dreams!!!!!!!

Once a year I (Courtney) head out to spend a few days with 400 wedding planners from the US, Canada and Japan.  It is truly something that I look forward to each year – a time to reconnect with old friends, meet some new friends but most importantly LEARN.  Learn what is new is the business, what is coming our way soon, how we here at AMA can better serve and assist our clients on a daily basis.  Well that time of year has arrived!!  Tomorrow evening I will board my American Airlines flight and head off to West Palm Beach FL.  While I am away know that Krisie is still busy creating a MAGICAL wedding this weekend and she will be in the office to answer any and all your needs!  I’ll try and update when I can from Florida!  Wishing you a most MAGICAL weekend filled with your very own Happily Ever After!

Greetings Friends ~
It has been awhile since we have posted anything and we are sooo sorry about that. With Jen leaving (for her next BIG THING) and Me coming back into the country after being gone 5 weeks it’s been a bit of a whirlwind getting back in the groove with our fall wedding season! But I am sooo excited for some great happenings here and some absolutely amazing weddings taking place this fall not to mention all the fabulous images coming in from the end of summer weddings! So my friends hang on cause there is about to be some most MAGICAL happenings here on the blog real soon! Time to scurry off to a wedding so I chat with you all ASAP!  But in case you missed it I shared a few thoughts with the ladies of Wedding 101 earlier this week on first looks and so did some other amazing talents in the business so I wanted to make sure you had the link!!

To Do or Not To Do A First Look – That my friends is the question!!
